Asus VG278HE 144Hz Monitor recommendation?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm due for a new monitor really soon as my old one is slowly dying. I'm wondering what you guys think of the Asus VG278HE. I can't say I would use it much for the 3D but I see alot of people saying that gaming at 120hz or above feels alot smoother than 60hz.

I'd also like to know if I would need to maintain 120fps to actually see a difference in the game or in this case (144). I would also assume that using Vsync ingame would capp out the FPS at 144 aswell?

If you are going to stick with a 27-inch monitor, i would get a 2560x1440 ips monitor. I have owned a 23" 120hz monitor, a 27" 1080p monitor, 3x nvidia surround with aw2310 monitors, an auria 27" 1440 monitor, and my current monitor. The 27" auria was the best one of the bunch.

I don't have the money for a screen of that resolution for similar pricing to this one in the UK as far as I'm aware

I just got this monitor from amazon. Was reading the reviews and was a little nervous due to people complaining about dead pixels and the color. Also coming from a 22" samsung the size difference also had me a bit worried. I went ahead and took a chance and so far I'm happy I did.

I was on 1680x1050 120hz and this monitor is clearly better. Bigger screen makes it easier to spots enemies if you're into FPS. The 144hz is not much of a difference but the input lag is so low and very little ghosting compared to my old samsung 120hz. Now add in you can use the light boost motion blur elimination trick and you have a crt like LCD monitor. The colors out the box are way too bright. I actually use recommended calibration settings from one review on amazon which makes the colors a lot better.

If you're into FPS and want the smoothest monitor with pretty good colors then this monitor is pretty damn good. It looks good as well. A lot of the people say you shouldn't get 1080p at this size but honestly I got used to it really quick.

One problem though which might bother you is the backlight bleeding which standouts along the bottom of the screen the most. Now this is only when you have dark screen. For the most part I don't notice. I haven't watched any 1080p videos yet so I can't comment for movies. I do use for my xbox as well with hdmi and the speakers are not the greatest but ok for me and the picture quality and colors are very nice.
